Being a franchise owner presents many unique opportunities and challenges. With an established brand like Tutor Doctor behind you, you’re already one step ahead.
However, to start on the right foot and ensure the continued success of your franchise, it’s important to set yourself clear, attainable goals. Here are some goal-setting tips to ensure the success of your franchise and help you nurture your own personal and professional development.
Understand the Vision of Your Franchise
Before setting personal goals, it’s important to align your objectives with Tutor Doctor’s overarching mission and vision. Matching your goals with our proven brand values and objectives ensures consistency, trust, and a higher likelihood of success.
Set SMART Goals
You’re probably already familiar with the SMART methodology. In fact, it might be a process you use with your students. Ensure your goals are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound. For example, instead of saying “I want to attract more students”, a SMART goal would be “I aim to attract 10% more students over the next six months”.
Break Down Large Goals
There’s nothing wrong with having ambitious long-term goals. Just make sure you’re not biting off more than you can chew. Instead, break a big goal down into smaller, more achievable tasks to make it less daunting. For example, a goal that you hope to achieve in a year can be broken down into quarterly or monthly tasks.
Focus on Continuous Learning
The education industry is constantly changing. From the latest interactive technology to social media marketing, it’s important to keep up with the latest advancements. As a franchise owner, aim to keep up to speed with trends and tools so that you can use them throughout your business to improve your services and make things more efficient. Set goals for your own personal development, such as engaging in online courses or attending seminars.
Prioritise Client Satisfaction
In the tutoring business, satisfied clients can lead to more referrals. Make it a goal to consistently collect feedback from parents and students. Whether that’s through an informal chat, an online survey, or a review on social media, every word-of-mouth recommendation you receive is like gold. Feedback like this can also help you to improve your services.
Foster Community Engagement
Tutor Doctor franchises thrive when they set a solid foundation within their local communities. We actively encourage community engagement—whether it's partnering with local schools, sponsoring community events, or conducting free workshops on academic success.
Invest in Your Team
Your tutors are the lifeblood of your franchise. Set goals to help them grow and carry your business forward. Whether you set a goal for continuous training or to reduce staff turnover, investing in your team directly impacts the success of your franchise.
Use Technology to Your Advantage
In today’s digital age, embracing technology and digital tools can streamline operations and enhance the student’s learning journey and experience. Set goals to check out new learning tools and websites. From student tracking and digital marketing to lesson planning and online revision, there are so many resources available.
Review and Adjust Regularly
Lastly, keep in mind that goal-setting isn’t a ‘set and forget’ activity. As the year progresses and situations change, some goals may need a little tweaking from time to time. A good rule of thumb is to set aside some time once a month to review your goals and track progress.
